Becoming an artist was tougher than I thought. Lots of choices had to be made: choosing the right canvas, choosing the right paints, right brushes, mediums… even choosing the right light bulb! Indeed.
Today I get my new light bulb. Now, if I was just a simple, mortal man, I would go to the shop and buy first one on the shelf. But, I am planning to become an artist, right? So, I had to choose artistic one, or to be specific, one which has: “exclusive technology, known as 508 Natural Daylight Illumination, gives you true colors, clear details, and reduced eyestrain and fatigue”. And I did! 1600 lumens! Beat that!
Seriously, light is important in painting and the new one will be very helpful tool. But, I am emotional with objects and I felt guilty for not using my old light bulb anymore. With this small, imperfect painting, I want to say “thanks for serving me well”.
Because saying thanks is also art.
